Farmer Feature: Mugenyi Edith

Our next farmer feature focuses on one of the outstanding members of the Rubirizi Farming Cooperative - Edith. Edith has been a role model for many of her peers and community members. She grows some of the most delicious, healthy plantains, and does so with a sense of pride. She's also a charismatic speaker and savvy businesswoman: since we've begun purchasing plantains from Edith and her community, she has invested in growing several more acres of sweet plantain, allowing her to maintain and grow opportunities in the local market while keeping up with our increasing demand. At meetings, she stands up to educate her peers on the benefits of investing in expanding their agricultural assets and improving the quality of their offerings as a group.
